Here's a few pictures of the Dynam PBY Catalina from Nitroplanes. I'm hoping to get the maiden flight in this week. The power is impressive and the quality is nice. I color matched the plastic mount parts and repainted the prop tips. I can't wait to fly it!

Best,
Tony

Here's photos of the Guanli Catalina (Brushless) from Nitroplanes. A truly great RC floatplane for $110. I added cutdown 3-bladed GWS props, scratchbuilt prop hubs, modified the elevator with CF rod to prevent split elevator deflection and went over all the seams with foam safe CA. I have several flights on the aircraft and after relocating the 1500mAh battery forward, this bird flies great and looks so realistic in the air. I just need a sound card of radial engines running to make it perfect.

Best,
Tony

I recently got into float flying and my first is the Electrifly Seawind RxR purchased from Tower Hobbies. This is one fun float plane, very easy to fly off the water and looks great in the air!

Here's a few pictures from our recent club float fly.
